Kerrie and I have had a blast doing the paper - getting out around our community, gathering stories, working with our supporting advertisers and community groups and building our online footprint.
This weekend, 9-10 July, the second issue of our baby, BEACON BHB, is getting shoved into 9,959 mailboxes lovingly bundled with whatever junk mail Reach Media has been able to get together for the weekend. This means that if your letterbox sprots a "no junk mail" sign, we won't be in your letterbox. If you do get commercial mail, please have a look to see if BEACON is included!
Why do we send it this way? Well we thought about popping around to your place and 9,958 others to give you a copy of the paper we love but the idea made us feel tired. Instead we are paying good money to keep others in employment to bring it to you. You can also pick up a copy from the Library and Community Centre as well as a growing list of retailers. However, we are also in the digital age so we are offering to personally deliver the next issue of BEACON BHB to your inbox TWO DAYS early before it hits the letterboxes. You can get this VIP access for FREE by signing up to our VIP list here
We appreciate your interest in this great community. It makes it a wonderful place to live.
